  2. **Variables entered into the Cox regression were: gender, ADL Long Scale, CHESS, ISE, admitted from, pain scale, CPS and DRS.
  3. # Score 0 = independent or only needs supervision; Score 28 = severe impairment in all four ADL activities
  4. ## Score 0 = stable condition; Score 5 = highly unstable and in risk of death, hospitalization, pain, caregiver stress and poor self-rated health.
